Building a Brighter Future
The Danish Construction Association is the business and employers’ organization of the Danish construction sector.
Over the past 30 years, construction in Denmark has managed to decouple energy consumption from economic growth. The total building stock has increased by nearly 40%. At the same time, construction in Denmark has been able to limit energy consumption with climate-friendly solutions that reduce the amount of CO2 emitted from the buildings.
The Danish construction business has now begun the next phase, which aims at making all buildings CO2-neutral. Industry business and research institutes are in the process of developing and testing new solutions and concepts. In order to reach the goal many different solutions involving design, materials and building components have to be developed and tested.
